Does Saudi Arabia want to Israel to bomb Iran?

There is scuttlebutt that Saudi Arabia will allow Israel bombers access to their airspace in the event they decide to take care of business with Iran. It must have been a tough choice for Riyadh, between the psychos and the infidels. Here is Allahpundit’s take:  

It’s Middle Eastern politics in microcosm. For all the Wahhabist invective towards al-Yahud, the Saudis are more afraid of being nuked by Iran in some insane Sunni/Shiite armaggedon than by Israel, and rightly so. So, just as the local Arab regimes demagogue Israeli nukes for show while worrying privately about Tehran, the Kingdom might lend the IAF some airspace and then lamely pretend afterwards that the incursion was unwanted.
